Wi-Fi vs hard wire connection

I have a great wi-fi signal but have wondered if my Play 1 will sound better with an Ethernet connection.
Running a wire won't take more a a few hours but is it worth the trouble?

If you are not having problems with skipping or dropouts then a wired connection will not help you. If the speaker gets the bits being sent to it then you are good; the way they get there makes absolutely no difference to the resulting sound. You only talk about wired vs. wireless if there is interference or other issues that prevents all the data from getting though wirelessly and causes skipping or other serious problems.

No. It will sound the same.
